Which version of dia are you using? In 0.91-pre, there are 5 separated

Hi Alejandro,

This is a good news indeed. You are right that I wasn looking at dia
0.90 - this is what made its way into vanilla RedHat. It's a  bit pain
in the neck to look at current CVS, because of this nice spaghetti
affect when you start to upgrade packages (someone has just mentioned
it here).

I'm sorry to be causing update trauma, but the font situation was just
getting ridiculous in the old version.

As this (the bleeding edge problem) seems to be an issue, perhaps
someone could try to set up a rudimentary how-to on what should be
upgraded and what are you about to loose in your system when you do
the upgrade? If someone who went through the process could put up
together several points and post it somewhere? I would be grateful. I
volunteer to drop in my experience once I get to tackling this.

The FAQ lists the packages necessary for Dia 0.91 (though not
transitively).  In a properly packaged distribution, you shouldn't lose
anything, as Gtk1.2 and Gtk2 can coexist.  But that's not always the case,
of course.
